How to reach an Ionic Webapplication in the local network?


#1

I try to run an Ionic Web-App in my own network, to reach the website by my smartphone. To serve I run the following command in the root of the project:

ionic serve --address 192.168.13.27

But I get the following error message:

[08:34:24]  ionic-app-scripts 1.0.0
[08:34:25]  ionic-app-script task: "serve"
[08:34:25]  TypeError: Cannot read property 'host' of undefined
TypeError: Cannot read property 'host' of undefined

    at run (bootstrap_node.js:352:7)
    at startup (bootstrap_node.js:144:9)
    at boot strap_node.js:467:3

If I run serve with --lab or without anything else, it runs. I also do some reseach on the internet, without an success.

How or where can I define theIP ADDRESS of the IONIC SERVER?

Hi,

You can’t define the IP address of the ionic server, you have to use the IP address of the PC the project is running.
